REST Collector Requests per second?

I am working with an external API to collect data. This works beautifully except they throttle requests per second to 1.

Is there a way in Stream where I can enforce 1 request per second at collection phase? Not per second/per worker unfortunately. Hard limit of 1 request per second which results in 429 errors for most of the pulls.

I am on version 3.5.4.

    Unfortunately there is not a built-in way to accomplish this today. Out of curiosity, is it pagination or something else that results in multiple requests per second?

    If you dont mind, can you share your company name? DM me in Cribl Slack if that works better. Id like to add the name to the internal ticket we have tracking this feature request.
